Click here for his arguments for a Common European Currency. If he was MP for my area I'd think of changing party and vote for him!

What do you think of http://worldhotel.com? Is it worth including them despite this response to being asked for a return URL? "Because links are advertising, we try very much to limit our links. We prefer to develop our own pages interneally or through joint ventures that generate revenue for the venture. We do not care about techies, Internet surfers, or search engines. We have an audience we advertise directly to. We do not care about anyone else beyond that audience. Search engines list us because that makes them more complete. That makes them able to seek higher advertising revenues or other benefits."
Suggestion: I am going to be stuck (as so many others are) at Heathrow for about 8 hours between planes (and of course this happens to Gatwick and Stanstead) why not put in a little section for each airport or least Gatwick since it is so close to you, as to what might be doable sightseeing by taxi or perhaps rental car rather than sitting in terminal? Any ideas? Here's Gatwick Aviation Society - Old Airliners and more about Gatwick by Vince
